This page was created to share some of my creations to enhance the Strat-O-Matic experience, mostly for the Card and Dice players.  I am a Strat-Veteran of almost 30 years, however returned recently from about 15 years off.  Check out my long term 1989-1990 NHL Replay if you have a chance: 1989-1990 NHL Replay

I have created team labels for Strat O Matic sets, and also in the process of continuing to create them for all my sets of Baseball, Hockey, Football, and Basketball.

In doing so, I borrowed a lot of content from the painstaking work of others.  Information was taken from wikipedia as well as:

https://www.hockey-reference.com/https://www.pro-football-reference.com/https://www.baseball-reference.com/

As far as logos, uniforms, and other patches and flair, they can be found at: (check them out!)

Sports Logos for a great database of sports logos and uniforms

Dressed to the Nines – Baseball Hall of Fame for MLB uniforms

 

The attached are pdfs of each season labels I have created.  Personally, I use Avery labels, and these are printed on 5″ x 7″ sheets.  You can do what you wish with them, but if they are printed larger, I am unsure what the resolution will look like.  When printing, make sure any ‘fit to page’ box is not checked.  I use Avery 5450 labels for these.  Some people have been able to print these labels directly on envelopes.
For card storage, I use #6 coin envelopes for older baseball seasons, #7 for hockey.  For seasons  that contain many extra players and pitchers’ hitting cards, the teams may get snug so I have moved to #7 coin envelopes other than older baseball sets.  I have found that over time, teams will kind of form the envelope to its size, but I cannot vouch for the long-term storage effects on the cards as I just starting using these last year.
I place the team in the envelope, then carefully put the label on.  I reinforce each side of the label with 1/2 strip of scotch tape (extending just past the corners) because the label will flare up where the envelope bends with the cards and it will lose adhesion.
When playing, I prop the cards up somewhere to add some more flair.  The baseball sets also have weather and ballpark information for quick reference.
Please contact me with any comments, concerns, corrections, or requests (although I am committed to finishing my sets first).  Contact

Highlights

  • Phantastic Phils: Phillies win their first World Series title as Carlton, Schmidt star
  • By George! … Brett hits .390 with power, leads KC to its first World Series
  • Speed to Burn: Henderson steals 100, Leflore 97, Moreno 96
Full SummaryOne of the most historic seasons ever featured the Philadelphia Phillies’ first World Series title in its 180-plus year history and the Kansas City Royals’ first World Series appearance. KC’s George Brett made the most serious run at a .400 batting average since Ted Williams in 1941. A dozen players made impressive contributions to their future Hall of Fame credentials.

One of the most exciting seasons ever featured many superstars, among them NL MVP Mike Schmidt (48 HR, 121 RBI, .624 slugging), AL MVP Brett (.390 BA, .454 OBP, .664 slugging), NL Cy Young Steve Carlton (24 wins, 286 strikeouts) and AL Cy Young Steve Stone (25 wins). Rickey Henderson had 100 stolen bases. Reggie Jackson hit .300 for the only time and led the AL with 41 HR. Eddie Murray, Gary Carter, Andre Dawson, Bruce Sutter, Don Sutton, Goose Gossage and Nolan Ryan also had huge years.

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic: 2018 Baseball Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

  • Highlights

    • Best Bosox: WS champs win franchise-record 108 games in three 100-win-team AL
    • Drama Kings: Two teams win divisions by one game; record number of walk-off homers
    • Hitting it Big: Rookies Ohtani, Acuna, Soto blast their way to stardom

     

    Full SummaryThe best of 2018 Major League Baseball often was record-setting awesome. The Boston Red Sox won a franchise-best 108 games, then crushed all foes on an 11-3 romp through the post-season to win their fourth World Series in the past 15 seasons. First, they eliminated the arch-rival Yankees, who won 100 games for the first time since 2009. Next, Boston disposed off reigning champion Houston, which had won a franchise-record 103 games. Finally, the Red Sox triumphed in the Fall Classic over the Los Angeles Dodgers, which had returned to the Series for the second straight season.

    The Dodgers won the NL West by one game. That was Milwaukee’s margin in the NL Central, too, after a playoff win over the Chicago Cubs.

    Boston’s Mookie Betts and Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich won the MVP awards, but the honors would have been justified for Boston’s J.D Martinez, Houston’s Alex Bregman, Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez, the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout, Colorado’s Nolan Arenado or Trevor Story, the Chicago Cubs’ Javier Baez or St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter.

    Major League pitchers set the record for strikeouts. Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell and the New York Mets’ Jacob deGrom won the Cy Young awards, but Cleveland’s Corey Kluber, Boston’s Chris Sale, Washington’s Max Scherzer and Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola were deserving. Snell and Kluber were the season’s only 20-game winners, but a dozen others had records like Luis Severino’s 19-8, Myles Mikolas’ 18-4, A.J. Happ’s 17-6, Charlie Morton’s 15-3 and Noah Syndergaard’s 13-4.

    Hitting and pitching dual-threat star Shohei Ohtani and Atlanta’s Ronald Acuna won the Rookie of the Year Awards, but it was a great class with Washington’s Juan Soto, the Yankees’ Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar, the Dodgers’ Walker Buehler, Miami’s Brian Anderson and this group of Cardinals: Harrison Bader, Mikolas, Jack Flaherty and Jordan Hicks.

2017-2018 NHL Team Labels

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic:  2017-2018 Hockey Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Capital Offense: Washington outscores all in playoffs, wins team’s first Cup
  • Vegas, Baby: Best expansion team ever reaches Cup Finals
  • Century Season: 11 teams, 3 skaters with 100+ points
Full SummaryWhen expansion-team Vegas won the Pacific Division with the NHL’s fourth-best record, it was one of the best stories of NHL history. When the Knights dominated the first three rounds of the playoffs and then won Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, they threatened to be one of the greatest stories in sports history. Instead, the Washington Capitals reached their historic pinnacle – their first Stanley Cup in the franchise’s 44-year history.

This was a super-competitive NHL season that had seven 40-goal men, three 100-point men and 11 teams with at least 100 points. It took 97 points to qualify for the playoffs in the East (Florida missed out with 96) and 95 to qualify in the West (St. Louis’ 94 was not enough). This was a special season for Presidents Cup winner Nashville (117 points) and Winnipeg (114 points, first trip to the conference finals). Tampa Bay led the East with 113 points and the NHL in goals before bowing to Washington in the conference finals.

Alex Ovechkin, the MVP of the playoffs, led the NHL (again) by scoring 49 goals. Edmonton’s Connor McDavid repeated as the league’s scoring leader, with 108 points, six more than Philly’s Claude Giroux, who tied with Winnipeg’s Blake Wheeler for the league lead with 68 assists. Las Vegas’ William Karlsson was third in goals (43), first in plus/minus (+49) and first in scoring percentage (23.4). Ten qualifying goalies had save percentage of at least .924, lead by St. Louis’ Carter Hutton (.931), who also led in goals-against average (2.09).

Hockey Heroes Set

Highlights

  • Ice Kings: 96 skaters, 12 goalies = 6 teams of superstars
  • Best of the Best: Supplement SOM’s 234-star All-Time Greats set
  • Galaxy of Stars: 31 Hall of Famers, 18 world stars, 9 Original Six greats
Full SummaryHere’s the set you’ve been waiting a decade for: Hockey Heroes brings you all the male players elected to the Hall of Fame since Strat-O-Matic’s All-Time Greats set of 2005 – Brett Hull, Mark Messier, Joe Sakic, Mike Modano, Chris Chelios, Chris Pronger and such non-North Americans as Dominik Hasek, Pavel Bure, Niklas Lidstrom, Peter Forsberg and Mats Sundin.

This set has much more: Hall of Famer Valeri Kharmalov, the Russian scoring king who never played in the NHL; on-their-way-to-the-Hall greats like Martin Brodeur, Teemu Selanne and still-active Jaromir Jagr, Jarome Iginla and Zdeno Chara; every retired player who has scored 500 goals (and most of those who have 400), such as Dave Andreychuk, Mark Recchi, Keith Tkachuk, Pat Verbeek, Pierre Turgeon, Jeremy Roenick and Peter Bondra; and not-to-be-forgotten Original Six stars Bob Baun, Roger Crozier, Paul Henderson, Flash Hollett, Claude Provost and others.

It’s a fantastic collection of stars assembled to form six well-balanced teams. And this set is ideally suited to be combined with the 234 All-Time Greats released by Strat-O-Matic in 2005.

Strat’s Description:

Fire on Ice:

  • Calgary Flames win first Stanley Cup in McDonalds’ final season
  • Trophy Habs: Montreal’s Roy (Vezina), Chelios (Norris) win top awards
  • Score Four: Lemieux, Gretzky, Yzerman, Nicholls with 150+ points

    Full SummaryThe 1988-89 NHL ended emotionally. Calgary’s only Stanley Cup championship to date was ultra-popular future Hall of Famer Lanny McDonald’s only Cup – in his final season. Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Steve Yzerman and Bernie Nicholls all had at least 150 points, as Lemieux topped the league with 199 points, 85 goals and 114 assists. Lemieux, Nicholls (70) and Yzerman (65) all had at least 65 goals.

    These are the six-pack of carded teams:

    Calgary: 51-goal scorers Joe Mullen and Joe Nieuwendyk joined future Hall of Famers Doug Gilmour, Al MacInnis and McDonald in a star-studded cast that included Hakan Loob, Gary Sutter, Gary Roberts, Theoren Fleury and Mike Vernon.

    Montreal: The Stanley Cup finalist had Vezina Trophy winner Patrick Roy in goal (2.47 goals-against average and .908 save percentage, both league-bests) and Norris Trophy winner Chris Chelios on defense, Selke Trophy winner Guy Carbonneau at center and future Hall of Famers Larry Robinson and Bob Gainey. The Habs weren’t all defense – 13 men were double-figure goal scorers, led by Mats Naslund (33) and Bobby Smith (32).

    Detroit: Steve Yzerman (65-90-155), Gerard Gallant (39-54-93) and Adam Oates (16-62-78) led the Red Wings to the Norris Division title.

    Los Angeles: The highest-scoring team in the league (376 goals) had Gretzky (54-114-168), Nicholls (70-80-150), Luc Robitaille (46-52-98) and four others who had at least 25 goals each.

    Pittsburgh: Lemieux (85-114-199), Rob Brown (49-66-115), defenseman Paul Coffey (30-83-113) and Dan Quinn (34-60-94) didn’t beat out Washington for the Patrick Division title, but sure had fun trying.

    Washington: The Patrick Division winners had Geoff Courtnall (42 goals), Mike Ridley (41 goals) and future Hall of Famers Scott Stevens, Rod Langway, Larry Murphy, Mike Gartner and Dino Ciccarelli.

2016-2017 NHL Team Labels

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic:  2016-2017 Hockey Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

  • Rare Repeat: Penguins first team in 20 years to win back-to-back Stanley Cups
  • Capital Offense: Washington tops in regular season, not in playoffs
  • 100 to 1: Edmonton flash McDavid only man to 100 points

Neither Stanley Cup finalist was a division winner, but defending champion Pittsburgh and first-time finalist Nashville played a worthy final. When it was over, Sidney Crosby was the third in NHL history to win back-to-back Conn Smythe Trophy and his Penguins were the first repeat winner in 20 years.

The regular season belonged to Washington, which won the Presidents Trophy with 118 points and 55 wins. The Capitals had to be that good to win the ultra-competitive Metropolitan Division, which had four of the NHL’s nine 100-point teams … For the first time, four teams had win streaks of 10 or more in the same season: Columbus 16, Minnesota 12, Philadelphia 10, Calgary 10. Chicago set a franchise record with eight straight road wins.

Leading scorer Connor McDavid, the 100-point man, led Edmonton to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Auston Mathews, tied for second with 40 goals, and his other rookie teammates led Toronto back to the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.Four goalies won at least 40 games. Surprisingly, one of them was in Edmonton, Cam Talbot. He was tied at the top with 42 wins with Washington’s Braden Holtby, who was no surprise at all for the Presidents Trophy-winning Capitals. Holtby became the third goalie in NHL history to win 40 games for three consecutive seasons.
